How to identify white supremacists:

Step 2: wait for white people to get offended.

Step 3: you have found the white supremacists.

I moved to . I suppose that’s worth mentioning. Weather has been nice up until a couple weeks ago.

My iOS mastodon client broke and then I forgot about Mastodon for a while.

… what’d I miss? 😜

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

Hmm. Google Maps shows two Schlotzsky’s(es?) in the greater area… but they’re both permanently closed. 😒

uspol, musings on due process 

reminder: if due process is revoked for one group -- illegal immigrants, for example -- it can be revoked for everyone. All the government has to do is say you're an illegal immigrant. You say, "but I'm not, and I can prove it" -- but prove it to who?? the government doesn't have to give you a chance to prove it, that's what revoking due process *means.*

But of course, most people who say it's okay to revoke illegal immigrants' due process are white. so.
